 Dear parents,

A Working PPT & Talk!

posted in

I spent the weekend writing my speech and editing my JSHS PowerPoint presentation to my satisfaction! (For your viewing ease, my speech for each slide is in the notes in PowerPoint. There are some animations and GIFs that won't play unless you enter slide show mode, though. Either way, you'll see the whole collaboration during my presentation practice!)

I would love to hear your feedback, if possible!

Thanks so much! :)

Let the Storm Rage On

Yes. I was so desperate for a clever blog title that I turned to Disney. ("Let It Go")

I am looking forward to practicing my presentation this coming week. I have completed and polished about 80% of my talk for the JSHS, which I will modify and condense for Gresham-Barlow. 

I ordered my poster papers. I have two boards at home from years ago, so I think I will use them in constructing my poster.

Thanks for reading! More coming soon.
